Really cool record set for Rockford

...ROCKFORD STILL WAITING FOR SUMMER...

ANY LECTURES ON GLOBAL WARMING IN ROCKFORD WILL GATHER LITTLE ATTENDENCE THIS SUMMER. SO FAR...HIGH TEMPERATURES HAVE BEEN CAPPED FROM ENTERING THE 90S. NONE OF THEM ARE IN SIGHT THROUGH NEXT WEEK EITHER.

THE LONGEST THAT ROCKFORD HAS EVER GONE WITHOUT A 90 DEGREE TEMPERATURE WAS AUGUST 15TH...OCCURRING IN THE YEAR 2000. SINCE ROCKFORD FAILED TO REACH 90 DEGREES YESTERDAY...WE ARE ALREADY EXPERIENCING A RECORD EVENT AND AWAITING THE NEW DATE OF RECORD.

ROCKFORD HAS NEVER GONE THROUGH A SUMMER WITHOUT A 90 DEGREE TEMPERATURE. METEOROLOGICAL SUMMER ENDS THE LAST DAY OF THIS MONTH. WITH THE DAYS SHORTENING BY SEVERAL MINUTES EACH DAY...IT IS NOT PROMISING FOR ROCKFORD TO SEE A 90 DEGREE EVENT PAST THIS SUMMER. SO IF NO 90 DEGREE TEMPERATURE IS RECORDED AT ROCKFORD IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS...ANOTHER RECORD WILL PROBABLY BE SET AS A YEAR WITHOUT A NINETY.
